Following the catastrophic incident which took place at the kambia district of Sierra Leone, wherein a Police Officer named Sannoh was allegedly spotted sexually penetrating a nine years old girl, the said police officer has been arrested by the Police in Kambia. 

Similar cases have been reported earlier of reckless police officers committing abominable and shameful acts to the same vulnerable people they sworn to protect. It could be recalled that of recent time, another police officer was caught having sexual intercourse with a married woman at the Susan’s Bay Police Post. 

If such behavior continues, will the people be safe, when those who are to maintain law and order, by protecting members of the public and their property, preventing crime, reducing the fear of crime and improving the quality of life for all citizens, are now becoming the biggest threat to society.   

These occurrences are alarming issues which the Sierra Leone Police as a body should treat with utmost seriousness and take drastic measures to put an end to such behavior of such people who call themselves police officers.
